# 7 balls, #endupatt, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, 225 minutes

5b casc varied - 10 min.   when including "fastest" here, then not as going for result, but as overall speediness \ nimbleness preparation for all that is to come.

Not really snapped-in as should.   [ daily7b II: 49 ]

# 7 balls, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, #conditions, #jugglingSpots, 165 minutes

( #conditions, #jugglingSpots - started raining just when i started, unexpectedly with wind & rain coming under the bridge, so I stood in windshade facing the pillar doing 5b .. later without or less rain, at my normal spot there, the cobbles were muddy and had to clean dropped balls a lot :-| another lesson on for when in doubt to choose a spot with granted conditions )
5b casc varied - 10 min.
5b 56752 - 60 min.   Upto 6 rounds clean.

# 7 balls, 3 heavy balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, 5 balls, 5 heavy balls, #form, 240 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 50 min.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.
5b 56752 - 17 min.   A 7th and an 8th side (to drop).
9b flashing - 40 min.   Six times 7 gathers, one of which 8 g in reach.   14 throws to collapse.   Started with trying to get a controlled, (well-)structured pattern, with motto "not all that high"; later went over to doing "empty the hands" (no matter "nine" or what), rather unleashed.
7b casc - 115 min.   Meager yield 55, 53, 43 throws longest runs.   Partly good phases, felt good, right, but too short or few for two hours' practise.   [ daily7b II: 55 ]
#form - burning shoulders a lot these days, haven't fully figured out whatfrom yet, guess it's from doing too far afront pattern (?) and or too tensed, forcing for result (?).
5b fastest - 13 min.

7b fastest - 10 min.   #new - casually done this before, especially when exhausted from forcing too much - now made it a stint on its own. It's a good speed \ fingers' nimbleness exercise in any case.   Clean flashes head high (among at least just as many fails). ~11 throws slightly above head.
5b fastest - 5 min.   One or two ~35-40 throws runs.

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, 5 ball tricks, 3 heavy balls, 5 balls, 8 balls, 5 heavy balls, 255 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 30 min.   including rarely done consecutive claws.
5 heavy balls, 200 gr casc - 5 min.   stopped when I felt tension in forearms from doing upto 9-high.
5b casc varied - 10 min.   including trying to joggle, could make a few steps to collapse.
9b flashing - 50 min.   Four times 7 gathers. Three times 8 g.
8b wimpy - 10 min.   A few times 10 throws. nothing clean.
5b 52567 - 35 min.   One 7th side to collapse. A few 6 sides, one of which clean.
7b casc - 110 min.   51, 47, 43 throws longest runs. Felt very nimble, speedy, even though somewhat tensed, forcing, eager. Changed spot to concreted area among the fields and didn't get it well anymore.   [ daily7b II: 51 ]

# 7 balls, 9 balls flashing, #mentec, #StagesOfLearning, 3 heavy balls, 5 ball tricks, 8 balls, 5 balls, 220 minutes

3b 200gr, freestyle, misc - 30 min.
5b casc varied - 5 min.
5b 52567 - 15 min.   A 6 sides clean run.
9b flashing - 40 min.   Three times 7 gathers, one of which 8 g in reach, and one of which 9 c in reach (was a few milliseconds late with catching two).   #mentec, #SoL - At a point, when launches came well so far, I did nothing anymore of all I do special for 9b, be it focus on this or that, or be it the launching rhythm, be it intending a flash to collect or rethrows no matter what, .. but just did like it were 7 balls on 9-height only (if all that makes sense), sort of regardless of the number "nine", just empty the hands. Indeed felt different, normal, familiar, not so ``elaborated´´, but it didn't manifest in good results.
8b wimpy - 10 min.   One 8 c cl. One 12 throws to collapse. A few 10 throws to drop or collapse.
7b casc - 120 min.   47, 57, 45, 53, 47 cl throws longest runs.   [ daily7b II: 57 ]
